Charla is Founder and President of Warrior Spirit Project, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit
organization that serves Veterans and First Responders in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. She
is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) and Certified Warriors at Ease teacher,
with extensive training in therapeutic and trauma-sensitive methods, including Integrative
Restoration (iRest) meditation. Charla has more than 25 years of professional leadership
experience in health and wellness promotion, working directly with U.S. military and
Department of Defense personnel in the U.S. and abroad, and she currently serves as Regional
Program Coordinator in Texas for the Warriors at Ease Train, Teach, and Transform Program.
Her understanding of military and first responder culture derives not only from her professional
life, but also from her 30+ years of marriage to a federal law enforcement officer who deployed
to Iraq and Afghanistan during OIF and OEF. Charla is passionate about bringing opportunities
for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing to our nation’s warriors, seeking to help them
discover a renewed sense of well-being, connection and purpose in their lives.
